No matter where you look, mainstream media is all about the backside. Society has come to favor a larger, curvier rear end. Following the trend, procedures related to butts, including buttock augmentations and buttock lifts, are the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the United States, according to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The number of buttock augmentation and lift procedures performed in 2015 increased by 36 percent from 2014, the largest increase of all procedures (ASPS). As the trend has grown in recent years, this number has risen 252 percent since 2000. In addition to the physical changes, buttock augmentation and lift procedures can have a positive effect on a person’s body image, increasing confidence and self-esteem.
Buttock augmentation, technically named gluteoplasty, is a body contouring procedure performed to provide additional fullness and definition to your buttocks region. Separately, a butt lift procedure can be utilized to lift a drooping buttock, typically without any augmentation. We can perform a combination of the two, known as a Brazilian butt lift, in order to deliver beautiful, natural looking results.
A Brazilian butt lift procedure involves extracting fat cells from a donor site using liposuction. Common donor sites include the hips, thighs, abdomen, and lower back. These fat cells are injected into the gluteal muscles to promote a more defined, contoured appearance. During your first consultation, we can discuss the different procedure options and decide the right combination for your unique anatomy and aesthetic desires.
Following your surgery, any visible bruising and swelling will fade as you heal. We’ll prescribe medications to help control any pain you may be experiencing and make you more comfortable during your recovery period. You will be able to walk normally, but we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for four weeks to ensure proper healing and recovery.
